“Over the years, we have enjoyed our partnership with the Institution and have entertained more than 10,000 PNC clients at this historic, unique and inspiring venue,” said Marlene D. Mosco, Northwest Pennsylvania regional president. “Through our sponsorships of the 10:45 lecture and evening performances, PNC has sponsored a wide range of speakers who entertained, educated and enlightened audiences.”
